A one-year (renewable) postdoctoral position is available in the Rignanese research group ( at the University of Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. The research will focus on the ab initio modeling of response properties of solids using Density Functional Perturbation Theory (DFPT). Specifically, high-throughput workflows will be developed for computing elastic properties and the corresponding calculations will be undertaken. In parallel, important developments will be carried in ABINIT ( in order to perform DPFT calculations with advanced functionals such as MGGA-SCAN and DFT+U.

Applicants should hold a PhD in Computational Physics/Materials Science not longer than 6 years ago. They should have strong background in the development and use of advanced electronic structure theory and computational codes. In particular, coding skills in Python and Fortran90 will be tested during the hiring process.

The ideal candidate should obviously be strongly motivated.

Interested candidates should send their applications to Prof. Rignanese ([email protected]). These must include a Motivation Letter, a CV (with their academic record, major achievements, and list of publications), as well as 3 Reference Names. Applications should be sent as a single pdf package.

The review of applications will start in March 2020. The position will start ideally before June 2020.
